  • LinkedIn have opened its brand new headquarters in Dublin this week, with over 80 jobs currently advertised with the tech giant.

    The new 17,650 sq m Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) HQ is the first that LinkedIn has built outside the USA, and is the result of an €85 million investment. The development was undertaken in order to meet the needs of LinkedIn’s growing workforce in Ireland, which has increased from three employees to 1,200 in just seven years.

    Linkedin’s Dublin operation serves the entire EMEA region supporting customers and members across two continents. The workforce includes people from 55 nations, in functions including sales, marketing, customer service, finance, analytics and engineering. LinkedIn is continuing to hire in Dublin, with more than 80 jobs currently advertised.
     
    “With our new EMEA HQ in the heart of Dublin, we have an office that we are proud to call home, and we are honoured that An Taoiseach and An Tánaiste were able to join us for this landmark moment for our growth in Ireland. The level of our investment reflects our commitment to Ireland and the great work our amazing team in Dublin does every day,” said Sharon McCooey, Head of LinkedIn Ireland.

    Also commenting at the opening ceremony, Irish Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said: "When LinkedIn first came to Ireland in 2010 we were in the middle of one of our darkest periods economically. But today, thanks to the sacrifices of the Irish people and the policies pursued by the Government, our economy has recovered, and we are now facing the future with renewed confidence. Over the last seven years, the LinkedIn workforce here in Dublin has grown from just three staff members to 1,200. Indeed, LinkedIn's belief in Ireland as a location for investment has contributed to our economic recovery.

    Dublin residents will have their own chance to see inside LinkedIn’s EMEA HQ as part of Open House Dublin on Saturday 14th October, to register go to https://openhousedublin.com/index.php/tour/linkedin-emea-headquarters
